Brains on Sex

Thread: 

I found this interesting. I don't have an opinion about the validity, but for what it's worth she doesn't sound like a winger.

"Women have an eight-lane superhighway for processing emotion, while men have a small country road," she writes. Men, however, "have O'Hare Airport as a hub for processing thoughts about sex, where women have the airfield nearby that lands small and private planes."

Battling Hysterical Mythology

TPM has a new piece up that I’d like to riff on, as it’s a subject near and dear to my heart and frankly, it’s been driving me crazy for several years now. I am sick and tired of the mythology of “Islamofascism” and the attendant narrative that the world approaching a global conflict and crises akin to 1936. A sober mind reflects: Read below the fold...

Save Healthcare: Dump Republicans

I like it! Today's Garrison Keillor:

Annual interest on the national debt now exceeds all government welfare programs combined. We'll be in Iraq for years to come. Hard choices need to be made, and given the situation we're in, I think we must bite the bullet and say no more health care for card-carrying Republicans. It just doesn't make sense to invest in longevity for people who don't believe in the future. Let them try faith-based medicine, let them pray for their arteries to be reamed and their hips to be restored, and leave science to the rest of us. Read below the fold...

Yes, it seems that Bush has indeed wangled himself and Unka Karl $450 million smackeroos in a slush fund they can get their paws on right now and do anything they want with. Surprise! The story has a lot of detail, but the bottom line is simple: The terms of the Softwood Lumber Agreement with Canada will give Bush complete control of an escrow account with $450 million in it, controlled by a board that Bush appoints, and which can be used for any purpose whatever, with no Congressional oversight.

Bush's "palace" in Baghdad: 21 stories, 16 foot walls, surface-to-air missiles, Krispy Kreme shop

And I'm sure there won't be any torture rooms in the basement.

Can you say "permanent presence"? I thought you could. The Age:

The plans are a state secret, so just where the Starbucks and Krispy Kreme stores will be is a mystery. But as the concrete hulks of a huge 21-building complex rise from the ashes of Saddam's Baghdad, Washington is sending a clear message to Iraqis: "We're here to stay."

Osama bin Laden, Superstar

General JC Christian dug into the past and uncovered some guy named Osama bin Laden. Probably made him up out of whole cloth. Or a burkha.
